[apologies if i'm positing in the wrong category -- I did look and it seemed a bit ambiguous move if proper]

Hi, I am an audio enthusiast and hobbyist audio engineer. I recently treated my studio with bass traps, and measured the result (of course) with Room EQ Wizard. I also tested IK's ARC 2 product and found it useful. Anyhow, my full write up is here:

I hope this is helpful to someone considering room treatment whether for a small studio or a home theater.

Best,

hmm... really sucked the bass out of that room. isn't the general consensus that you want around 400ms decay on the lower frequencies?

or is this because you are mixing?

Bmxer241 ,

Sorry, I don't feel qualified to speak to why one would want that much decay on LF. All I know is many control rooms have even more treatment and my room is still remarkably "live." That said, I was happy with the performance of what I got with just everything ceiling mounted. I know more could be done, but it would involve changing the decor.

For my purposes, 400ms (almost half a second) is way too long, though I guess it depends on the slope of the curve. 1/8th beats at 160bpm == 187ms between transients.
